IN FEAR Director Jeremy Lovering to Helm Haunted Hotel Film THE BRINGING

     August 21, 2014

Sony Pictures’ horror film The Bringing looked like an incredibly promising project earlier this year when Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn entered negotiations to take the helm.  Unfortunately, he subsequently left the project, but now Deadline reports that the studio is forging ahead with Jeremy Lovering now in talks to direct.  The idea for the film was spurred by the strange death of a woman at the Cecil Hotel in Los Angeles who was found in the water tanks.  Video surfaced of the woman acting erratically in the hotel elevator, and the Cecil has been home to a number of suicides over the years.  The script by Brandon and Philip Murphy revolves around a man investigating a strange death at the hotel who finds himself stumbling into a nightmare.

Lovering helmed the Sherlock Season 3 opener “The Empty Hearse” as well as the 2013 horror film In Fear.  I haven’t seen the latter, but his work on Sherlock was certainly swell.  If Refn saw something in The Bringing, hopefully Lovering can turn out a successful haunted house movie.
